“Antisocial Media offers a bold analysis of anxieties about recent transformations in labor--facilitated by the so-called sharing or gig economy—as epistemic problems. Rooted in queer theory’s critiques of normativity, Goldberg’s polemical book has the potential to change the conversations about work in American studies, labor studies, and digital media studies by asking us to question the value of social relations themselves.”
—Lucas Hilderbrand, author of Inherent Vice: Bootleg Histories of Videotape and Copyright
“Smart, perverse, disorienting—Antisocial Media resists a desire for 'the social' in pursuit of more surprising, and radical, connections. As a serious theorist and playful sociologist, Goldberg challenges readers to question the normative demand to work, and recognize the anxious affect structuring contemporary critiques of digitally-mediated shifts in labor and leisure. Rarely has queer thought risked being so irresponsible, and so insistently pleasurable.”
—Jackie Orr, author of Panic Diaries: A Geneaology of Panic Disorder
"Antisocial Media presents a timely discussion of the relationship among work, technologies, and sociality...It also challenges the public and researchers to question power relations embedded in critiques of technologies."
—International Journal of Communication
